We might have been delayed this week, but weâre back with four new releases, including the highly-anticipated horror film âThe Babadook,â the trailer of which has been amusing us for weeks. Cal was the only one in the queue for Susanne Bierâs delayed period drama âSerena,â starring everyoneâs favourite ballroom duo, while we both caught Bille Augustâs slow-burning mystery âNight Train to Lisbon,â although Cal saw it over a year ago! We end by discussing World War II drama âFury,â which leads us onto calamitous film scores and the wonder of Terrence Malick. Elsewhere, we chat about the Best Picture races of 1998 and 1945, the Hibs vs. Celtic debate from our âUnder the Skinâ review is finally settled, and a listener question forces us to address the temperament of a certain female tennis player. All that, plus Melanie Laurent has Huston problems, Pete manages to diss Carey Mulligan twice, and a sixty year-old sexpot has the potential to upset Elizabeth Olsen next week.
